What is the format of the examination?
The MCCKAP examination is a timed, four-hour, multiple-choice examination with accompanying images. A timed one-hour break is allowed during the examination. The examination is given in English.
Will special hardware or software be needed for the examination?
The examination requires a reliable, high-speed internet connection. Review the system requirements tab for details.
How do I access the examination?
A link to the MCCKAP examination will be available in your MySCCM account under the My Learning tab. Please note that access to the examination will not be available until the examination window opens on Tuesday, March 8, at 7:00 a.m. You will then have until the close of the examination window at 11:59 p.m. Central Time on Tuesday, March 15, to complete the four-hour examination.
How is the examination administered?
Since you will be taking this examination without the affiliation of a program and presumably without the benefit of a proctor, you are expected to adhere to the honor system. This means that you are not allowed to look up answers, copy or share content, or collaborate with other examinees in any way.
Do I have to take the examination all in one sitting or can I return to it later?
The MCCKAP examination is meant to provide a practice examination experience. Therefore, it must be taken in one sitting and is a timed examination.
Will I lose my answers if I lose my internet connection?
No. Answers are automatically saved once you click Submit. The only answer you may lose is that of the question you were working on. If you lose your internet connection, log back in to the examination and continue working.
If I decide to change an answer to a previously answered question or if I skip a question, may I go back to change or complete the answer?
Yes. You will be able to review and change the answer to previously answered questions and complete skipped questions.
Will technical assistance be available during examination week?
Yes. Technical assistance will be available between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Central Time, Monday through Friday, during the examination window. Contact SCCM Customer Service at email@example.com or +1 847 827-6888.
What information is included in the preliminary reports?
On examination completion, a detailed examination summary is available to view or download by clicking the "Examination summary report" button on the main examination page. This will open a page that displays the raw overall score, including raw score breakdowns by category, and the raw overall peer average for the examination. You can also view references for questions that you answered incorrectly in each section.
These results are considered preliminary until the key is verified by the MCCKAP Committee, which will occur shortly after the examination closes. Key verification is an important step, ensuring that items with questionable performance statistics are reviewed before final scores are calculated. Generally, few items are affected by key verification so preliminary results should closely approximate final results.
What are the examination start and end dates and times?
The 2022 MCCKAP examination will be available beginning at 7:00 a.m. Central Time on March 8, 2022, until 11:59 p.m. Central Time on March 15, 2022. If a conflict prohibits taking the examination during this period, contact SCCM Customer Service at +1 847 827-6888 to discuss your needs.
